    The cruzer still didnt show up.:( but thanks for the help

  • snow_faery Oct 01, 2009

    if i re formatted the drive...wont i lose what i have saved on it?

  • snow_faery Oct 01, 2009

    ok, so i have just realized that since my computer has multiple profiles on it...in the one i was using (guest) the drive doesnt show up in "my computer" but in every other profile it does. so i am assuming this is a security feature so guests cant easily access the removable drives.

I would try formatting the drive again.
1. Plug it into your computer. 2. Right Click "My Computer" and choose "Manage" 3. Go into "Disk Managment" 4. Right Click the Cruser Volume and choose "Format" 5. Choose NTFS and Default, then click OK. 6. Unplug and plug back in. 7. Check My computer. 8. Let me know.

SanDisk Cruzer Blade is not showing data. The drive shows up in 'My Computer' but data is not showing.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

When I plug in the flash drive it lights up but doesn't show up as a drive in "my computer". If I start the device manager (which shows the cruzer device as a funtional drive), disable it and...


STEP 1 - Connect the Cruzer to the PC

If you receive a "USB Device Not Recognized" error on the computer, the flash drive is most likely failed. Additional troubleshooting is unlikely to correct the problem.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage.

2. Click Device Manager on the left pane.
id10-2-3.gif

NOTE: The Cruzer might show up under several places under Device Manager such as:
1. Disk Drives
2. DVD/CD-ROM drives
3. Universal Serial Bus controls as USB Mass Storage.

If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers.
id10-2-note.gif


STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click on the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
id10-2-4.gif

2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.
id10-3-2.gif


STEP 4 - Verify if the flash drive is detected
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Look for the Cruzer under devices with removable storage.



SOLUTION 4 -
There might be a conflict in drive letters, see Resolving drive letter conflict.

How do you save files on a sandisk cruzer flash drive?


Insert the cruzer into the usb port. You should see a message pop up and say new hardware found and then flash off. It may also say usb memory or storage device or even recognize it as the cruzor. This recognition process is fairly quick say 5-10 seconds. After that the computer knows what the cruzer is and its ready for use.

The cruzer is now seen as another drive or storage drive on your computer. Your hard drive is usually C , the CD/DVD would be D drive and the cruzer would be seen as E. If you are in a program and want to save to the cruzer you open the file/save and you should see E drive or Cruzer if not click on my computer and look for it there. Once you find it just click on it and then hit save/ok. Thats all there is to using one. Once you know how to find it as a save option or a loading option then you just treat it like a hard drive.

Once you get it sorted out you will use it a lot. They are very handy.

How can i save a program to the cruzer micro 2gb from my computer?


Hi:
You can't save a program that is installed on your computer, but there is an option. You can install a program to your cruzer, or if a program is a downloaded program, you can download and save it to your cruzer, before you install it. This is like this, to prevent software piracy... Otherwise, I could steal a program from any computer, and copy it to a flash drive...

I have a 4gb cruzer flash drive and its not working


Okay. Try putting it in on the back of your computer and tell me if it lights up at all, even if it flashes once.

Sandisk crezer 4GB micro wont work


Try this,
Note:I assume you are on win XP.

Right click on my  computer and click manage.
Now on left side please select Device manager and look on the right side if you have any device that says "Unknow Device" or any device that is showing an Exclaimation Mark. If any of this exists then right click on that and uninstall. After this unplug your Flash drive and restart your computer and try inserting flash drive if it works or not.
If not, again go to device manager and expand an option that says "Disc Drives". Please check if it shows anything related to your Cruzer Flash Drive. If it's there, then go to Disc Management that will be there on left side of this same window. There, you need to look for your Removable disc and right click on it and click change drive letter. Now choose a different drive letter preferable one of the last alphabets like Z. After this click OK and now try going to my computer to check if it appears or not.
Moreover, if none of these solutions work please get back to me with some more info like if you have U3  on your Cruzer that comes preinstalled on your flash drive and the version of your OS.

Sandisk Cruzer Micro 2.0 problem


Should show up in "My Computer" as a removable drive with letter designator. Then it is simply a matter of drag and drop to copy files using the mouse. If XP doesn't recognize the drive, put it in another USB port, and or try it on another computer. If it doesn't show up then, take it back to the store.
